PersianSocial 91 min 1972

After spending six months behind bars, Mehdi Kafer (played by Saeed Rad) reunites with his friends, including Hasan Khayat Bashi, Hassan Raziani, Mohsen Arasteh, and Hossein Shahab. He seeks to settle a score with Hassan Tala’s gang (portrayed by Gholamreza Tashafa), the group responsible for his earlier imprisonment. During this time, Mehdi stumbles upon the diary of a disadvantaged girl named Suri (Pune). He learns that Suri is facing harassment from a relative (Iran Qadri) and her landlord (Akbar Jannati Shirazi). Touched by her plight, Mehdi resolves to help the girl and devises a plan to carry out what he intends to be his final robbery. However, complications arise when Hasan Tala’s gang exerts pressure on one of Mehdi’s associates, Gholam (played by Mohsen Arasteh), compelling him to disclose the location of the planned heist. Gholam unwittingly reveals the robbery’s whereabouts, leading Hasan Tala to inform the police. As a result, the police surround the location, and Mehdi’s attempt to escape ends in his tragic downfall. The story takes a dramatic turn as he faces the consequences of his actions.
